"Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is NOT breathlessness, it is NOT excitement, it is NOT the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two."
~Louis de Bernieres

Also, I'm having blogger drama. I can sign-in if I'm on Firefox but can't sign-in when on Safari. I know not cool, but I prefer Safari...do NOT care for google chrome. I'm annoyed.

Sunday Love Fest

Man oh, man, words can't explain my excitement over spending the weekend cleaning/organizing my loft space. I'm a new person, currently sitting at my drafting table creating this post. Yay, me! Exciting stuff I know. 

For the love fest of the week.

Pink Gloves Boxing. A friend of mine invited me to try-out a boxing class with her a few months back. True to form I had no idea what I was getting into, but it was new and something I'd never done before. I was a go! As the sun was shining down on me adealio had a $20 coupon to go to the same boxing place for 3 weeks unlimited amount of classes. Boy, did I jump on that deal. Great way to see if I really like something. Turns out I love it! My other excitement for the week is I tested out for my pink wraps. This is the first level, where you do a 1-2 punch on the bag for 3 solid minutes...no breaks or slowing down. I'm here to tell you while 3 minutes sounds easy it is the longest 3 of your life. I was stoked to achieve these pink babies.

Other fun things. My friend, Tolly, interviewed a super cool artist, Austin Kleon the other day on her blog. He does newspaper black-outs. I love them. See for yourself.

I love his stuff...simple, to the point.

As luck would have it, during my massive clean-up I found more master bathroom pix. The following are ones I've been searching high and low for...I love them!

 Perfect place for the chandelier...and hello, sparkles. How can you not love this?

Perfect dressing area. Also, sparkly and with chandelier. 

More sparkles. Check the floor design out in the dressing area, fun!!

Another brilliant idea discovered on the Freshome Blog. London has created the best use of a parking spot. Check this out- a cut-out of a car that fits into a parking spot, but is used to lock up bikes. Awesome, see for yourself!

Or a place to sit and rest...also, a great idea!

Happy Weekend!!!

Old School

I uncovered more funny stuff...my pre-google 'race' days. Race is a stretch at that time in my running world. I'm pretty sure it involved my friend, Ally, swinging by my office on a Friday morning, handing me a race form to fill-out for what we would be doing Sat morning. Not knowing what she was getting me into I always said yes. She's the reason I got into racing. I have to say the clueless way was so fun. Lacing up a shoe that looked like one could run in it, take off to a race site, go all out (that's how you race right?) and promptly die at the finish line. Anyway, in my cleaning process I uncovered a file named running. I don't think I've opened this file since moving to Austin. What I uncovered was hilarious. Pre-google 'race' days = mailed race results on small postcards on what looks like the first printer ever invented. I laughed harder when I saw I always placed in the top 10 of my age group, seriously...safe to say this is before the world got into running. Here's a pic of the cutest postcard ever!

Back of postcard- I'm 8th in AG
Also, in the running file was my first marathon training plan. I will include as well because it too caused me to laugh at myself. Can't believe I even survived it on this plan. Clueless is an interesting way to go for sure!
